Upsala-Circus is a non-profit organisation based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Apart from staging the most poetic circus shows I have ever seen, it is combining modern circus art with social pedagogy in order to "positively influence the life scenario and social status of at risk children and adolescents".

In 2002-2003 I worked as a volunteer in the then still small Upsala-Circus and since then I have supported Upsala and collaborated in different projects.
